How cold? Here's the Christmas Day forecast for Central Florida

Today's high: 46 degrees
Tonight's low: 30 degrees


Main weather concerns:
Freeze warnings are again in effect tonight into Christmas morning. Temperatures will fall into the 20s north of Orlando where Hard Freeze Warnings will be in effect. Feels like temperatures will be in the teens and 20s around sunrise. Temperatures will remain cold Sunday with highs mostly in the 40s.

While cold temperatures will likely deter many from getting in the water, beach conditions will be rough due to astronomically high tides throughout the weekend. Coastal flooding will be possible along with a high rip current risk.

Don't forget a jacket if you are heading to the parks this weekend! Highs will only warm to the mid 40s today and tomorrow with partly to mostly cloudy skies.


The chilly weather is expected to last into Monday with lows back below freezing for areas north of I-4 Monday morning. Highs return to the 50s by the afternoon. A steady warming trend will return in the final week of 2022 with highs back in the 60s Tuesday and 70s by Wednesday. 

In fact, we could see highs near 80 by Friday! Rain chances remain low with only as slight bump by New Years weekend.
